The random ramblings and rantings of frazzled SQL Server DBA

SQL Server 2005 and 2008 receive Guest Failover Clustering Support from Microsoft

Bob Ward blogged about this on the Customer Support Services blog this morning:

SQL Server Support Policy for Failover Clustering and Virtualization gets an update…

Essentially you can now run SQL Server 2005 and 2008 in a Virtualized Failover Cluster as long as the Guest OS is Windows Server 2008 or higher, the selected virtualization vendor meets the requirements for SVVP as outlined in the following article:

Support policy for Microsoft SQL Server products that are running in a hardware virtualization environment

and the Virtualization vendor meets the requirements of the following document:

The Microsoft Support Policy for Windows Server 2008 Failover Clusters.

For further information see the blog post by Bob Ward above.
